Walker Staffing Up in Anticipation of Recall Election

December 9, 2011

Here's the latest sign that a Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker is very likely to face a recall election campaign: He's putting together an experienced campaign team in anticipation of 2012.

Dan Blum, an experienced hand who previously worked on Sen. Rob Portman's, R-Ohio, 2010 campaign staff and the Republican National Committee prior to that will join the team as deputy campaign manager, Walker's campaign announced on Friday. Ciara Matthews, who worked for Sharron Angle's 2010 Senate campaign (curiously described in the release as having been a "senior member of the communications team for a top tier U.S. Senate race in 2010") will serve as communications director.

Tom Evenson and Andrea Boom, who both have experience in Wisconsin, will join the team as deputy communications director and finance director, respectively.

Keith Gilkes -- who managed Walker's 2010 campaign -- will work for Walker in an advisory role. Brian Tringali with the Tarrance Group will continue to poll for the governor.

The pace at which the recall signatures are being collected -- the movement had gathered nearly 300,000 in 12 days -- strongly suggests that a recall campaign is in the offing for next year.
